Alice Severson[]

Alice is the director of Happier Times Rehabilitation Clinic. She inducts the clinic's patients, both young girl drug addicts and chronic care patients, and supervises the clinic's staff. She appears to be concerned for the welfare of her patients, but she is also oblivious to her patient's lives and abuse within the clinic; she fails to identify Tyler, a clinic worker, who sexually coerces his patients. She attempts to gain Brigitte's trust but fails to do so. She dies after Ghost strikes her in the head with a hammer, and she falls into the basement. (Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed)

Announcer (unnamed)[]

Never appearing in person, the "announcer" is most likely an office worker at Bailey Downs High School. Following the disappearance of student Trina Sinclair, she addressed the student body over the PA system, calling students of interest to the guidance counselor's office where police were waiting to question them about Trina's disappearance. (Ginger Snaps)
The announcer was voiced by Lucy Lawless who plays Xena in Xena: Warrior Princess. She is married to Rob Tapert, one of Sam Raimi's business partners.



The grandmother of Ghost. She is a severe burn victim patient at Happier Times Rehabilitation Clinic. Not much is known about Barbara, except that she is an innocent victim of Ghost's malice. It is revealed that Ghost lit a match and burned her grandmother intentionally in bed. At the end of Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, it is assumed that she returns home (a door bell is heard, and Ghost is seen opening the door when the film ends). (Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed)


Baxter was a dog owned by an unnamed woman and her toddler son. Notably, the film Ginger Snaps begins showing what remains of his carcass after being killed by the Beast of Bailey Downs. The toddler found Baxter's severed foot in his sandbox and the mother found the rest of the animal outside his dog house. (Ginger Snaps)

Beast of Bailey Downs[]

The Beast of Bailey Downs was a lycanthrope that prowled the forests surrounding the rural community of Bailey Downs. Though it mostly hunted small animals such as dogs, it found a more savory victim in the form of Ginger Fitzgerald. The beast attacked Ginger and her sister Brigitte in the woods, biting her and spreading its infection. During this harrowing encounter, Brigitte managed to snap a picture of the animal with her Polaroid. As the two girls fled from the monster, it chased them across the road where it was struck and killed by a motorist named Sam. The identity of the werewolf remains unknown, but in his inspection, Sam identifies it to be a male. (Ginger Snaps)


Ben was a high school student at Bailey Downs High School and a close friend of Jason McCardy. He enjoyed watching the female field hockey team during gym class along with Jason and friend Tim. He was later seen smoking marijuana with them and Ginger Fitzgerald in the back of Sam's van. Ben tries to convince Jason to not interact with the Fitzgerald sisters, but Jason did not take his advice and hooked up with Ginger. (Ginger Snaps)


Beth-Ann was a drug-addict in-patient at the Happier Times Clinic. She bullies Ghost, in one scene throwing coins at her and egging others to join in.

Brigitte Fitzgerald (I)[]

For the Brigitte from the first and second films set in modern-day Canada, see Brigitte Fitzgerald.
An ancestor or spiritual predecessor of the Brigitte Fitzgerald who appears in the first two films. This Brigitte appears in 1815 Canada alongside her sister Ginger, and they are orphans who become lost in the Canadian wilderness while finding a path east. They meet with a mysterious oracle and are saved by a hunter, who leads the sisters to Fort Bailey. She is suspicious of the Fort, but later finds out that its residents are paranoid after a series of werewolf attacks on the base. She protects Ginger from the Fort's residents when they become suspicious of them, and she helps Ginger when she discovers she was infected with the lycanthropy curse by an infected boy. She later infects herself with Ginger's blood by cutting a wound in her hand and holding it to Ginger's. Her fate is unknown, but it is assumed she transforms into a werewolf. (Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning)

Brigitte Fitzgerald[]

For the Brigitte from the prequel set in 1815 Canada, see Brigitte Fitzgerald (I).
Brigitte Fitzgerald is the younger sister of Ginger Fitzgerald.
In Ginger Snaps, she is a devout follower of her older sister Ginger and made a pact with her when they were younger to always be together. Brigitte helps Ginger deal with the effects of Lycanthropy that were slowly turning Ginger into a werewolf. She stays by her side as the transformation progresses, including looking for the aid of a young man named Sam who provided Brigitte with a serum made from Monkshood and helping her when Ginger began to have vicious and sexual tendencies, and she guides Ginger after she murdered two school faculty. She ultimately fails to stop Ginger's complete transformation into a werewolf, and to stay together with her sister, she infects herself with Ginger's blood by clasping their two palms together with open wounds. She accidentally kills her when the Gingerwolf lunges into her knife.
In Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, Brigitte is a runaway who is dependent on daily monkshood injections. She is paranoid about taking healing time measurements, and she finds another male werewolf stalking her. She accidently overdoses and is taken as an in-patient at the Happier Times Clinic. She befriends Ghost, and distrusts all other patients, doctors and nurses, and the director on site Alice. When Tyler, a nurse, takes away Brigitte's monkshood, she finds hallucinations, her transformation rate, and her sexual desire increasing in frequency. When she retakes the cure, her body rejects the cure, and her werewolf progression is only accelerated. Ultimately, she is betrayed by Ghost, who locks her in the basement of her grandmother's house as Brigitte is nearing her full transformation. (Ginger Snaps; Ginger Snaps: Unleashed)

He along with his mother was believed to have been killed by werewolves, but Geoffery was in fact infected with lycanthropy and was hidden in Wallace's house by his father for his own protection. Ginger accidently discovers him, and Geoffery bites her, spreading the infection. He is the target of Ginger's according to the oracle, who says that Ginger must kill Geoffery for the curse to end.

Ginger Fitzgerald (I)[]

For the Ginger from the first and second films set in modern-day Canada, see Ginger Fitzgerald.
Ginger Fitzgerald is an ancestor or spiritual successor of the modern-day Ginger Fitzgerald who has the same namesake. This Ginger appears in 1815 Canada alongside her sister Brigitte, and they are orphans who become lost in the Canadian wilderness while finding a path east. They meet with a mysterious oracle and are saved by a hunter, who leads the sisters to Fort Bailey. She is suspicious of the Fort, but later finds out that its residents are paranoid after a series of werewolf attacks on the base. She is accidently infected with the lycanthropy curse by an infected boy named Geoffrey. Her sister, Brigitte, protects her from the Fort's residents when they become suspicious of them.

Ginger Fitzgerald[]

For the Ginger from the prequel set in 1815 Canada, see Ginger Fitzgerald (I).
Ginger Fitzgerald was the older sister of Brigitte Fitzgerald and the daughter of Pamela and Henry Fitzgerald.
In Ginger Snaps, Ginger was attacked and bitten by the Beast of Bailey Downs who infected her with the curse of lycanthropy. Although she healed from her injuries, her extremely fast healing rate was suspect. Over time, she began going through more erratic changes such as violent mood swings, increased libido and even physical changes, like growing a tail. As the days passed, her ferocity became uncontrollable and she murdered several people and small animals. Brigitte tried to cure Ginger with a syringe filled with serum made from Monkshood, but it was too late. Ginger fully transformed into a werewolf and Brigitte was forced to defend herself at the family home. Brigitte accidentally killed Ginger by stabbing her in the heart with knife.
In Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, Ginger appears to Brigitte as an apparition apparently only Brigitte can see and hear. She warns Brigitte of the werewolf stalker, about how the monkshood "cure" was only a temporary treatment, and how Brigitte should give in to her sexual desires, caused by the werewolf curse and by adolescence. Ultimately, Brigitte refuses to listen to Ginger like she did in the first film. (Ginger Snaps, Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed)


Ghost is an eccentric and delusional young girl who lives in a rehab clinic/hospital with her hospitalized Grandmother Barbara. Ghost has several odd quirks, including a tendency to speak to her self as a narrator, speaking in riddles and rhymes, and her obsession with redrawing characters from comic books in different universes. She is the first and only person to discover at the clinic that Brigitte is a werewolf through her eavesdropping of the clinic's workers and from her comic books. Ghost befriends a reluctant Brigitte, and she helps them both to escape the clinic from a male werewolf to her grandmother's house. It is later discovered that Ghost has a twisted moral mindset when it is discovered that she burned her grandmother in bed. Ghost betrays Brigitte by lying that Tyler raped her, and Brigitte leaves Tyler to be killed by the werewolf. She later locks the Brigittewolf in the basement. (Ginger Snaps: Unleashed)

Jason slowly began developing symptoms associated with lycanthropy. Ginger's sister, Brigitte Fitzgerald, found Jason as he was attacking a young boy on Halloween night.
